~ It's A . . . .
Well, I will start this journal off with the good news. We had our ultrasound yesterday and found out that the Lord decided to bless us with another girl! It was quite a shock, and I don’t know why it was a shock being that I am not a psychic or anything of the sort, but this whole pregnancy I have been certain that we were having a little boy. As a matter of fact this will make the third pregnancy that I have been sure that it was a boy, and been totally wrong. But this time I was so certain that it was a boy that I have proceeded to call this baby Elijah (our would be boy name) since the day we found out that I was pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong, I am excited to be having another daughter, I was just so sure that I was having a son. I must admit though, that I did shed a few tears last night to mourn the loss of my “invented” son Elijah. I was totally surprised at the sadness that I felt, as I have totally felt happy with the idea of a son or a daughter. I just thought that it was a boy. I love my daughters so much and they have brought me so much joy, that I know, that as soon as I can remember to stop calling her Elijah, I will be ecstatic to have three daughters. I am definitely glad that I found out the sex now and did not wait until the birth.
Tomorrow we are going to be on our way to Disney World (yea!). The girls are so excited. I will fill you in on the details when we get back!
